Mrs McGregor


Welcome to Class 2

Year 1 and Year 2

Teacher: Mrs. McGregor

Teaching Assistants: Miss. Stevens and Mrs. Huntbach


Welcome back, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

Our topic in Spring has a nature focus and is all about Birds. We will be visiting a local bird sanctuary to study birds, both those native to our country and around the world. We will explore what we can do to help our garden birds and we will be taking part in the RSPB’s Garden Birdwatch at the end of January.

In DT, we will be building bird feeders that are suitable for the birds that will visit our school grounds. In Music, we will be creating animal sounds using a range of instruments. In computing, we will be using the internet to stay safe and complete research.

In Science, we are going to be learning about animals including humans.  We will be studying the five animal groups – birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles and fish. Through the topic, we will also be learning all about seasonal change.

In RE, we will study the Lords Prayer and Easter.

PE this half term will be on a Monday with Miss Abbott and on a Tuesday with Mr. Gibbons. We will also be going swimming each Friday afternoon.

Class 2 will bring reading books home each week. Please read with your child each night where possible, as this will help them to become confident readers with a true enjoyment of reading.

Spellings this term will be the Word lists in the diaries. The children will learn 5-6 words each week and will be tested on a Wednesday or Thursday. If they spell the words correctly they will be highlighted in the back of the diary in green (Pink for words learnt in Autumn). They will then get a dot next to the words they need to learn for the following week.

Don't forget your reading diaries, PE kits and water bottles Class 2.
